2010 was the year where I became an ‘official photographer’ for a stage event, when I photographed a highly successful concert held at Kimbolton Castle that raised significant sums of money for charity. It represented my first attempt at stage photography. Singing were Kate Roberts, Helen Patching, Nathan Taylor and Stephen Weller. The band included Spaldwick’s very own Mark Hunter (on drums), and the show was very successfully directed by Lisa Hunter. Funds were raised for Spaldwick Playtimes Playgroup and other good causes.
2010 represents an appropriate date to start my personal blog – when I had my early experiences of ‘event photography’, photographing my local village fete. Looking back, although these were far from my best photos, if I had not taken them there would be nothing to mark the event and remember the people involved. I always love to ‘document’ or ‘record’ things around me for posterity.
